Fun treasure hunting with family and friends with scenic panorama view of Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo.

For this specific adventure, geocaching, there are TONS of gems along this road. Prepare yourself for lots of tight turns, winding roads and great panorama views! You can learn more about geocaching by visiting the Geocaching website, as well as search for several caches for various hunting levels.

Coordinates: N 35 15.469, W 120 45.511
Park at the obvious dirt look out on the left, right after you make a tight turn. (this is if you're driving up and not heading back down the hills).
Description: Located among a rocky outcropping in the hills at the top of Prefumo Canyon Road. 
Terrain: slight incline, but not bad at all. 

Also, this place is a great area to come out and catch the sunset or even look up at the starry night sky. Cows are nearby. Watch your step for poop!
